The Smith Westerns are becoming legends around the Brooklyn DIY scene, it seems as though every show they try and play is broken up the police. I attended a show curated by Todd P. and The Pelly Twins this weekend, where this was unfortunately the case (read about it here). The police approached the stage with their flashlights, only to hear Cullen Omori say “AGAIN!?” while in the middle of preforming their fifth song.
Their new track Weekend is a foray into brit-pop and scraps the super fuzziness that surrounded their last album. I’ve also been told that their labelmates Tennis have listened to the album, and have been assured that it is very good.
